    I’d love to hear how your fur-baby is adjusting to baby!! We are expecting our first, and have a senior-pup we are pretty sure will be just fine, but makes me so nervous!

    She’s getting so big! I can’t believe how fast the months keep flying by. I can’t believe it’s August already!

    When you climb in the crib, do you stay there until she wakes up again or do you sneak out once she’s asleep? My little one has been sleeping poorly and I haven’t tried this tactic yet.

      Most crib weight limits are <50 pounds; I would NOT recommend doing this. It's incredibly unsafe.

        Oh no, she climbed in the crib with her daughter! The horror! Let’s all critique her unnecessarily! Seriously, who cares what she does with her daughter and her crib? My husband stood in our crib to hang my daughter’s mobile and he weighs 180 pounds. I’ve stood in it before too. It didn’t collapse. Those cribs can support way more than 50 pounds. I know sooo many people who climb in their cribs with the children and they don’t collapse.

        Honestly, I didn’t think twice about it. I know so many parents who climb in the cribs with their kids to comfort them.

      I get out as soon as she’s asleep.

    How in the world are you able to climb in the crib with her? My crib would have fallen apart if I had tried that, not to mention I’m sure there is a weight limit.

      I just tried to find a weight limit for my crib and only discovered this:

      10. Up to how many pounds will this crib hold?
      The limiting factor for using the crib is not weight, but height. The maximum height for a child to use a crib is 35″.

        Impressive. My daughter is 3 and I’ve never heard of anyone doing this before, mainly because it seems like more trouble than it’s worth. Glad it works for you. 🙂

    She is just adorable!

    I love your updates since our daughters are the same age! My supply has also dropped in half (I’ve always had issues with supply) so it makes me feel better to hear yours has too. Siena is also all over the place with pulling up and won’t stop climbing on everything!

    Siena is also fighting naps – I guess there is a sleep regression around now due to their newfound skills and never wanting to stop practicing them.

    2 months til 1 year old!

    She is so cute! Her hair is really coming in now – I think she has nearly as much as my almost two year old, who is on track to have enough length for a bob by age 15 😉
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a sweetheart! She’s beautiful and you are clearly doing an amazing job as a mom 🙂
    Is she teething yet? I have a daughter the same age cutting teeth #7 & 8 and at night she sometimes just needs me close (so I plop her in the guest bed with me so we can both sleep!). Mine is working on a slithery crawl – Annalynn’s bear crawl is so cute!

      I’m saying this solely out of sincere concern- you shouldn’t fall asleep with your baby in a bed. That’s how SIDS happens

        Thank you for your concern! No one knows exactly what causes SIDS (or it would have a more accurate name than “Sudden Infant Death Syndrome”). There are factors that seem to reduce the risk, and in fact bed-sharing or co-sleeping while adhering to proper safeguards seems to lower the risk of SIDS. For brevity’s sake I will leave this link instead of multiple scholarly sources, of which there are many available::


        I hope you are enjoying your own baby as much as I am snuggling mine 🙂 If you don’t have one you have no business commenting on this anyway.

    I don’t know if you’ve gotten this before, but Annalynn is an absolutely beautiful name.

    So sweet! My son is two months younger and he is coming into such a fun stage. He’s not doing much crawling yet but even so, he is so much more active and mobile that he was even just a few weeks ago. I relate on the hit or miss sleeping. He went through a phase a week or so ago where he was also waking up for two hours in the middle of the night. Hang in there, mama!

    So cute!! Any tips on how you got her to drink from a straw? My daughter is about the same age and doesn’t seem to get it!

    • Laura

      Does your daughter use pouches? Mine didn’t get it until she’d been using a pouch for a couple of weeks and then had no problem figuring out how to suck on the straw. She seemed to have a hard time with the kid cup ones so I used an adult stainless steel straw in a tall glass (so she didn’t have to suck too long before the water came up) and she got it on her first try and loves drinking that way now.

    My lord, she’s cute! And she’s at the “drunken baby walk” stage which I love!
